Zombie Monkie Robust Porter
Zombie Monkie is a dark, rich porter, carefully brewed for the post-Zompoc world to come. It’s crafted with loads of roasted dark chocolate and specialty malts and then inoculated with enough hops to add a floral citrus character to the finish. It’s hearty and complex, because you might be drinking it for a long time with the other survivors.
Food Pairings: This robust porter lends itself to hearty dishes for fall, winter or any time you want dark, rich flavor. Pairs well with creamy cheese. Make a savory cheese sauce by adding Zombie Monkie to melted Gruyere cheese and cream. Gobble it down with toasted bread and chase it with Zombie Monkie. Enjoy this porter with beef stew, beef stroganoff, smoked meats, a bacon, mushroom and caramelized onion tart, or espresso flavors in coffee desserts.
